Knives away to new homes
      #303849 - 08/08/17 03:22 PM

This field scalpel will be away this week. Buff horn on a 2 1/2 in x .1 15N20 blade in a pocket sheath.

That's a neat blade. Someone is going to be very happy!

Is there much of a difference between the field scalpel and a 'bird and fish' knife?

This is my two smaller patterns with the field scalpel and the upland game bird. I dont call the upland game bird knife a bird and fish as it would need to be stainless to really comply with that naming so while it can easily be used for fish it would need to be noted that this is carbon steel, 15N20, that I use for the smaller blades.

Thanks for the explanation and photo VG. Your upland game blade looks a cracker.

Cheers

I got an order for another of the field scalpel,s but with a cross draw sheath, so am have got 2 of them under way and an upland game blade as well to have them on hand for when required. Not sure what I will use for handle scales as yet for the spare blades but that is something that can be decided later. They are ground, HT and in the tempering oven at the moment.

Good to see it been working out mate, keep up the good work!
As far as scales are concerned, unless the client wants something really fancy just use whatever is a good cabinet making timber over your way - the blade does the all the work not the handle.
Cheers

I got a box of Australian blackwood the other day so there are a whole heap of handles in that and there is quite a bit of other types of wood in the drawers but what people want is what people want so I have to be able to supply if I can.

I decided to make the upland game knife for myself and will use a 1/8" blue G10 handle with a jarah liner for something different.
